Cannabis Science, Inc. (CBIS), a U.S. company specializing in the development of cannabinoid-based medicines, is pleased to announce the immediate launch of a new 40-acre industrial hemp research and development project in Nevada. Cannabis Science, American States University (ASU), FSO NAC / HRM Farms celebrate as the Lincoln County, Nevada industrial hemp property has just been approved by the Nevada Department of Agriculture Industrial Hemp Program. The Group will immediately commence its industrial hemp research operations on the 40-acre Lincoln County, Nevada property.
The Group believes it can bring in one and quite possibly two harvests this year. The primary purpose of the research initiative is to provide hands-on University professional training in agricultural industrial hemp research and development focused on creating pharmaceutical drugs targeting critical ailments while furthering the Group’s other industrial targets such as Alternate Biofuels, Construction, Clothing and Automobile Materials, and other industries. The University programs aim to provide affordable quality education to its students so as to achieve their career goals and excel in their chosen professions.
The main research and development will focus on Cancer, PTSD, Chronic Pain, Arthritis, Parkinson’s Disease, Epilepsy, Autism, and HIV/AIDS. The research data collected will primarily be used for FDA and other clinical studies by creating a pharmaceutical drug development plan for key critical ailments. Other objectives for research and development include wholesale distribution to physicians and licensed wholesale manufacturers coupled with extraction research and development for green energy/fuel, construction materials, clothing fabric, paper manufacturing, food products, and vehicle production parts.
A key area of this Lincoln County Industrial Hemp Research & Economic Development Plan is job creation, and CBIS has provided many jobs across the country and through its University partners is anticipating creating a whole lot more through its unique and robust Industrial hemp Research Program. The vertical integration that allows for jobs to be provided through the development of local industrial hemp industry, healthcare infrastructure, water management, waste management, technology, communications, and housing is profound anywhere.
The CBIS Industrial Hemp Research & Economic Development Programs are growing stronger due to the many collaborations created within the recently launched Cannabis Science Global Consortium. The CBIS Global Consortium works as a framework and platform to cooperate and collaborate with stakeholders worldwide. Linking universities, foundations, corporations, and individuals to share research, ideas, and other relevant information, the CBIS Global Consortium implements a cutting-edge research program to develop medicines and delivery mechanisms from bench-to-bedside. The Global Consortium also enables the Company to more strategically coordinate its initiatives, including those focused on education, job creation, and skills training.
Last year in the San Joaquin County, Cannabis Science initiated their first Industrial Hemp Research Project with the Group, its pilot research commenced on approximately 26 acres as part of the larger Economic Development Plan inclusive of education, job creation, and drug development. Equivalent to the San Joaquin County Project, the Lincoln County Project will provide industrial hemp research opportunities, education opportunities, and skills training for community residents that will help create jobs and improve the overall economic conditions.
“Cannabis Science will leverage and build on our experiences in San Joaquin County,” stated Mr. Dabney. “We have a roadmap for what we want to do, in California, in Nevada, as well as every other State right across the Country.”
While the San Joaquin County Industrial Hemp Research & Economic Development project remains in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California in Sacramento the Company is looking forward settling the case outside of court.
